AMER­SHAM Con­cert Club had a real treat on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 7 with a recital by a tal­ented young vi­o­lin­ist, Mar­tyn Jack­son, ac­com­pa­nied by Alison Rhind.

Alison is much sought-af­ter as an ac­com­pa­nist and it was our good for­tune that she was free to take the place of the sched­uled pi­anist who was ill.
